Slip and fall accidents are the most common type of premises liability case. They can occur almost anywhere, in either public or private places. They happen in stores, malls, restaurants, hotels and apartment buildings. Many occur when proper handrails are not provided on stairways. They can also happen outside, in parking lots, on sidewalks, handicap ramps or driveways.
The legal approach your lawyer takes to handling your slip and fall case often depends on the facts involved. That is because the property owner's duty to warn you of dangerous conditions depend on what you were doing on the property.
If you were a guest at a residential home, your lawyer will have to prove certain things to the court. But if you were injured while shopping in a store, your case will be slightly different.
